Every day, I marvel at all the beauty that surrounds me. My Scotty was an artist and an engineer, so not only did he leave beautifully airbrushed walls that pick up the colors that are coming in from natural light and change as the light changes as the day and weather evolves and changes, but the light switches are arranged in a naturally accommodating way to enhance ease and flow. So subtle, and yet life-enhancing on a daily and repetitive level that makes me Thank Him daily for being that person who cared so much about every detail to such an extent.
And, by eliciting that response through his thoughtful generosity, it inspires me to bring that intention into the things I create in my life. Certainly, I don't have the same level of skill or vision that he possessed, and I accept that. I'm the acolyte at the feet of the Master, so each focused intention to move toward bringing joy or ease into someone else's life feels like a pay-forward of all the myriad gifts I receive in just about every little thing he left behind!
One part of me is kind of overwhelmed with the vast array of quietly and consistently given gifts of workability in my life without him, and another is inspired by them. When I'm overwhelmed, I think, "If I started today and was On It from this moment forward, I could never make such a wonderful difference in another person's or other people's lives as he has! It's too selfless for me to contemplate, much less DO all day long every day until I bite the big one!"
Another part of me, a much Braver part, says "It won't hurt to try! And, he'll love that you "Got it!" even if it is after he's gone. It's the Love part that matters. Imbue your actions and creations, however meager and even temporary, they are with that essence of Caring very deeply, and the Magic will be there long after you've gone on to other things. You know from your experience with his thoughtful gifts that weren't wrapped and bowed that this is True. There's really no down side to it. Just whenever, and however, and wherever...just do it!
